Are you happy?
Wanna be happier?
Here is some good insight from Ryan Biddulph. Enjoy.
People tell me I always look happy.
Even though I feel sad sometimes I feel genuinely happy most of the time.
Living in places like Fiji, Bali and New Zealand helped bring a smile to my face. But happiness has largely been an inside job for me and all happy folks.
I felt equally happy living in New Jersey or Thailand nearly a decade ago as I began circling the globe.
How to Be Happy
Be incredibly happy by feeling happy now independent of circumstances.
I feel happy right now because I am alive. Life is good because infinite potential surrounds me. I write these words for the million member Positively Positive community while coasting 40,000 feet above the South Pacific.
I wrapped up a vie month trip to exotic spots like Oman, Turkey and Thailand yesterday. Plus I also enjoyed the most satiating glass of soda five minutes ago.
Both globe-trotting and soda glass experiences give me cause for incredible happiness. This is the secret to being predominantly happy; choose happiness now no matter the circumstances.
